I do not wish to live any longer that I might live through You! O Lord Jesus Christ... receive my life for You are my life!

Into Your hand I commit my spirit; You have redeemed me” (Psalm 31:5)

Attract my heart, for You are my joy! O Nourishing food, be my appeaser! O Divine Leader, my strength!

O Lord, do not be far from Me; O My Strength, hasten to help Me” (Psalm 22:19)
Fr. Tadros Y. Malaty, God is my Paradise: Divine Love 1 (St. Mark’s Coptic Orthodox Church, NJ, 1995)
